I usually am a huge planner and organiser. That’s why I love Ravelry! However, the usual Make Nine Challenge with specific patterns hasn’t worked for me in the past because I change my mind throughout the year and don’t want to knit the chosen patterns anymore. That’s why I decided for a bit of change (what a shock! I usually hate changes!). My Make Nines now include mainly a general wish such as “more knitted socks” or “sew something in corduroy”. This way, my Make Nines will hopefully guide me and remind me of what I need or want in my wardrobe. And another change is that I prepared a Make Nine list not only for knitting, as in the previous years, but also for sewing, as I sew more and more frequently. So it’s more like #MakeEighteen2023, actually! So what am I planning for 2023?
Usually, when looking for a new sewing pattern that best matches my idea, I take refuge on Pinterest. I have hierarchically structured boards where I save patterns and clothes that other people sewed. However, I miss a list of companies where I could find some sewing patterns – because I have poor memory and always forget the web addresses. So I decided to create the list, not only for myself but for anyone who would be interested.
Dear reader, since I remember, I have always had a blog. Even now, although I haven’t posted anything in a while. So it’s natural I created a new blog focused on my knitting and sewing, isn’t it? Because coding some basic websites (with a bit of help from my husband) is my hobby, too.
Terranean refers to planet Earth, as I am a geographer. It also includes Tera, a diminutive of my name. And I am a knitter and sewer. That's what Terranean Stitch means.
